Homelessness is a significant and concerning issue within Australian society. A few years ago, two uni students in Queensland decided to bring a bold new idea to life to assist those affected by this issue. This idea involved loading up a van with two washing machines and dryers, and driving around their local suburbs, offering to wash and dry the clothes of those living rough on the streets.
Since their first round of washing, the dynamic duo – now known across the nation by its name ‘Orange Sky Laundry’ – is recognised as a leading member of the movement to end poverty in Australian suburbs. Through providing free laundry services, and engaging in meaningful conversations with their friends on the street every day, this organisation has spent 100 000 hours assisting those in need.
Always looking for volunteers and donations, this fantastic organisation provides us with great opportunities to make a difference. To find out more about the amazing cause, visit their website @ http://www.orangeskylaundry.com.au/.
